I worked from home today. Since I didn't have to travel to work, I got in an extra hour of sleep this morning.. That's a bonus for me.. I guess I should do this once in a while so that I get recharged :) On the whole it was a take it easy day.. I did have some more snacks than usual today.. I blame it on working from home again.. I knew what to do, but didn't control myself.. So the blame should be on me.. But the best part is that I was cautious over dinner and then cut down my night time snacks.. Though I went overboard caloriewise, I think it is a success to not graze in my bed tonight.. And I got some exercise too !!!

Yes, I did make it.. I avoided the night grazing temptation for 7 days in a row now.. That is a great achievement for me.. I was about to yield last night, but when my dh came to get a share of the sweet, I just took a small bite and gave away the most part.. For some reason, I didn't go back for another serving or another snack last night.. Thank GOD... So one week now and I hope I can make it to another week and then 21 days and eventually make it a habit to not even think about this night time grazing..
It might get trickier from tonight.. my mom is leaving tonight and I don't have the luxury of sleeping more without worrying about my breakfast or lunch.. I got more time for exercise during the last month when she was around.. But now I have to manage my time more effectively.. Its going to be a challenge, but I know that is the reality and have to make lifestyle changes.. My dh is a picky eater.. pickiest eater I should say.. I haven't seen a guy like him yet.. He doesn't cooperate with my eating at home plan.. He needs to eat out very often.. So these days, I don't join him in eating out, but just let him take a carry-out or eat out when ever he desires.. That way I can atleast avoid the restaurant junk and not get addicted to those food like he is.. I need to work on eventually getting him out of it too, but for now my late evening work schedule prevents me from preparing dinner in the evening and he doesn't eat food that is precooked and stored.. So now you know how picky a guy he is :(
Its December 1 today and I haven't gotten any exercise yet.. Not so bad food wise, but I am in no mood for exercising.. Feeling bit tired and down now.. I just wanted to get home, have dinner and slash into bed.. May be tomorrow will be a better day.. and I can fit in atleast 20 minutes exercise everyday this month.. or atleast 10 minutes? I have been gaining so much with this steroid and I need to badly stop this upward trend.. I need to get down atleast 6 pounds to where I was before beginning the steroid.. Sounds bit depressing... My clothes are getting fitter and my new clothes are getting bigger.. I hope I don't go over this.. I am struggling badly to get rid of the excess fat.. My arms and thighs started getting loose and they really show up.. My cheeks are getting chubbier and all my friends and colleagues recognize the weight gain and enquire about it.. I need to badly stop this.. right here..

I have been doing this for the past few weeks now... I don't wake up from bed to eat after I sleep.. but I eat lots of junk in the bed before I sleep.. I have dinner in the night and then this craving begins and my mind is full of food.. I used to hide and eat previously, but now I openly began eating in front of my dh.. he laughs at me at times.. he encourages me to sleep soon so that I don't fall into the craving.. But the past few days, I could not overcome that temptation and I yielded to it.. failed miserably and I have been grazing every single day... But the best thing about eating infront of my dh is that I don't graze mindlessly, I stop somewhere.. If I'd hide and eat, I'd really do worse.. (But anyways, this is no excuse for night time eating).. I just desperately need that dessert or snack in the night before I go to bed... My mind is thinking about food - what can I eat - this or that?.. whatever I do, my thoughts are around food during that time.. I may play Solitaire, but I'll be thinking of food.. I may be working or catching up on emails, or even reading posts in SP, but I still need that snack.. Does any of you have this problem? If so what do you do to overcome this?
May be I should just slash into bed to see if I can overcome it tonight.. I am planning to take one day at a time..
